FOLIANT Castor 530 SF

The FOLIANT Castor 530 SF is a high speed compact industrial laminating machine, constructed for a heavy duty, with a suction feeder and a high speed bump separator, with a walk-in service section and an optional pallet feeder, a pallet stacker and a film loader. The machine maximum speed is up to 55 m/min., while the maximum performance is 4600 sheets per hour of B2 portrait (white paper 200 gsm). The machine requires an external compressor /6-8 bar, 150 l / min) as a source of the pressured air for its pneumatic systems.


The FOLIANT Castor 530 SF is equipped with a rising pile back separation stream feeder with a suction feed head. It is driven by an Omron servo motor and controlled by a machine central PLC. The built-in Becker vacuum pump is used for sheets back airing and feeding head suction cups vacuum. The overlaps are electronically controlled from the touch screen. The accuracy is +/- 2 mm under-lap (in a constant speed). The standard feeder is fitted with a lifting plate and its capacity is a 55 cm pile of paper.


The FOLIANT Castor 530 SF laminator maximum sheet size is 53 x 75 cm. The minimum sheet size is 32 x 25 cm (A4). The FOLIANT Castor 530 SF machine is a single sided thermal industrial laminator, laminating the paper 115 – 600 gsm, with an unique „U“ cross bar for thin sheets flat and safety high pressure lamination, mounted in the front of the main laminating rollers, with an „In run“ adjustable de-curl bar.
The roll of a film is mounted on an air shaft that allows very convenient, easy and precise film positioning. The shaft capacity is up to 3000 m of the 24 - 31 microns film. The film holder unit is equipped with a trim slitter and a perforating wheel.

The laminating process is done between two laminating rollers - a highly polished chrome roller and a lower hard rubber pressure roller. The laminating roller is heated with 4 contact electric heaters inside the roller, with a sensitive in-roll temperature sensor. The pressure is pneumatically adjustable, with an extra independent control knob for each roller edge.

The pressure of pulling rollers is controlled with a pneumatic control knob. There is a service „walk-in“ section between the machine laminating rollers and the pulling rollers for an easy machine maintenance and rollers cleaning.

The machine is fitted with OMRON Programmable Logic Controllers, which control all machines’ functions. Used PLC system includes many automation items for the machine easy control and reliable lamination. The whole machine is controlled by an interactive easy understandable icon based touch screen – no language mutation is needed.


The integrated bump separator (sheeter) is equipped with a pair of fast cycling rollers. The process is controlled from the machine PLC unit. The separated sheets are delivered into a vibrating jogger (optional) or a pallet stacker (optional).

Lamination Films

The machine laminates the BOPP films (23 – 42 microns), Nylon films (max 35 microns) and PET films (max. 25 microns).
